See America: Mt. Rainier National Park (17 Photos)

1 min read

Mount Rainier National Park is a northwest icon. The 368-square-mile national park commemorates the grandeur of Mount Rainier, the highest peak in Washington at an elevation of 14,410 FT (4,392 M) and one of the most active volcanoes in the Pacific Northwest. History books are filled with the names of explorers who have claimed Mount Rainier as a symbol of the Northwest region’s austere beauty and magnificence.

But Mt. Rainier National Park’s qualities extend beyond the beauty of this unusual mountain. Visitors come to the national park for a wide range of reasons, from experiencing its old growth forests that date back as much as 200 years, to appreciating its numerous waterfalls. There are more than 300 miles of trails spread across the park, including one that stitches the circumference of the mountain, more than 92 miles in total.
